Vintage tractors a hit at Brunswick

It was a tired old 1970 Massey Ferguson when John and Sue Collingwood (left), Chapman Valley, gave it to Marshall Gould (right) to restore. It would join a collection Mr Gould and partner Karen Morton (centre) have in the shed at Geraldton. Mr Collingwood said he bought the tractor second-hand in about 1979 to replace a smaller 90hp tractor but fixing it up when it got to tired wasn't something he had time to do himself, so gifting it to someone with the passion for restoring tractors was important.
